Fashion statement: Jasmine Burke, gender bender or fashion offender?

By Liz Kelly

Last night, actress Jasmine Burke -- who you may or may not remember from "The Secret Life of Bees" or, umm, "The Secret Life of Bees" -- turned up to an Atlanta event wearing the get-up you see below. Decidedly not the usual garb for aspiring starlets. Is it retro-"Newsie"-esque, Diane Keaton-inspired, "Victor Victoria" chic or just flat out risky.

You tell us...

Knickers are back? I remember they were in when I was in 6th grade.

She looks good and it got her in the paper. Win.

Why am I having flashes of Alicia Keys circa 4 or 5 years ago?

Cute outfit. Thanks, Jasmine, for not exposing your boobs almost to the nipple or your behind by wearing a skirt that would show us your g-string (if you happened to put one on that day). Wear what you want to wear and not what they think you should. Everything they say is "in" has been "in" before. Still not sure who "they" is, but you get my point.

I like her shoes.

It's risky and I completely dig it- she pulls it off with great flair. And I like her shoes too.

Jasmine's outfit works, despite Liz' allusion to the Diane Keaton School of Schmata Fashion.
